Christmas Club Card II - Winter Wishes

I must confess I did not order this stamp set on the demo pre-order, although I thought it was beautiful. I also didn't order it in the first live catalogue order. But I couldn't resist it any longer when I placed a second order earlier this month. Winter Wishes just gives me a warm feeling of winters when I was a child. 

Along with the snowshoes, greenery, and pine cone, the set also has a ski, a skate (stamp twice for a pair!), and an old fashioned sled. The sentiment "Warm Wishes" can be used for any time of year!



I found this design on Pinterest but I've lost the name of the original designer - I'm sorry! I love that it is eye-catching but not overwhelming. And there's just a little fussy cutting to make it pop.


The greenery and pine cones are so easy to add to the envelope and inside of the card.

The snowshoes really are fast and easy to fussy cut so you can make numerous copies. And I'm so glad Stampin' Up! made the little wooden snowflakes from last years Star Boxes kit available on their own as Snowflake Elements this year! Plus the red, green, and white Home for Christmas Enamel Dots work with everything!


The Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper gives it just enough bling to make it special.
